ANTH 101.010 Introduction to Anthropology

Catalog Description

Surveys the breadth of anthropology, introducing students to archaeology, biological anthropology, ethnology, human evolutionary ecology and linguistics. Meets New Mexico Lower-Division General Education Common Core.

Detailed Course Description

This course is designed as a general introduction to the field of anthropology. We define anthropology as the study of culture and the human condition, past, present and future. We will examine each of the four sub-fields of anthropology: biological (the study of human genetic and cultural evolution and diversity), archaeology (the study of past humans through material culture), linguistics (the study of human language, communication, and writing systems), and socio-cultural (the understanding of cultural otherness). As part of this course we will survey different problems or questions that set the scope of modern anthropological thought. We will touch on issues of human evolution, the study of primates, modern human diversity and genetics. We will explore the development of human societies, both ancient and modern. Through inspection of different cultural forms and encounters we will examine how the self (whether a racial, ethnic, gender, national or class identity) is forged in relation to the other (images and views of cultural difference).

ANTH 130.008 Cultures of the World

Catalog Description

Basic concepts and methods of cultural anthropology. Selected cultures, ranging from preliterate societies to
aspects of urban civilization. Meets New Mexico Lower-Division General Education Common Core Curriculum Area.

Detailed Course Description

Introductory courses to cultural anthropology typically frame the discipline as the study of different cultures, as the study of cultural difference. These courses are designed to teach students how to investigate the diversity of human thought, action, and sociality. They become, in short, productive sites for students (1) to confront their own assumptions about the world and the ways in which it is rendered legible; (2) to identify the culturally specific ideologies and practices through which everyday life is organized; and (3) to delineate the processes through which life is made meaningful. The goal of these courses, then, has been to teach students how to successfully (and respectfully) negotiate socio-cultural differences, acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate an interconnected and multicultural world.

Recently, cultural anthropologists have begun to critique this understanding of the discipline. These scholars have started to identify the assumptions built into their investigations, questioning the extent to which they should treat ‘culture’ as an object of study—as an ordered and structured system, as an isolatable and boundable entity. The result? Contemporary cultural anthropologists have largely abandoned the study of ‘culture(s)’, creating a space for the historically situated study of social contestations and fragmentations; modes of power and forms of resistance; the locally global flows of media, capital, and people; the affective dimensions of everyday experiences; as well as the actor-networks that engender new kinds of realities.

This course is designed to introduce students to this shifting terrain of study. In the first part of the course, we will trace the broad brushstrokes of cultural anthropology and its political-intellectual emergence in the early twentieth century. We will learn how to deploy some of the key concepts, methods, and analytic tools that have accompanied the discipline’s realignment. But we will also think critically about the effects of anthropology beyond the academy. Thus, in the second part of the course, we will confront the extent to which the discipline of anthropology continues to shape certain political projects and imaginations. We will begin to ask: How have the finished texts and the bodily movements of anthropologists shaped—and been shaped by—contemporary configurations of power? What are the ways in which anthropologists might engage with contemporary issues as ethnographers, advocates, practitioners, or critics? While exploring these topics, students will have the opportunity to enhance their critical reading skills; to become more effective writers; and to challenge their own assumptions about the world(s) in which they live—skills that will prove beneficial even if they decide to not continue their studies in anthropology.

ANTH 251.001 Forensic Anthropology

Catalog Description

This course is designed to introduce students to the forensic investigation of death. Emphasis will be on current methods and techniques and include the role of the anthropologist as an integral member of the investigation process.

Detailed Course Description

This course will introduce you to the field of forensic anthropology, its main concepts, and their application in the broader medicolegal system. This is not a training course; it is an introduction to the types of knowledge required of forensic anthropologists and a glimpse into a real-life application of science. The material is based on up-to-date methods and directions in forensic anthropology, both within the United States and internationally. This course is based on scientific practice, not what is often portrayed in the media. I will often contrast these media portrayals of the field with what forensic anthropologists actually do on a daily basis. In order to provide a more interactive online experience, I will be pairing traditional course materials (textbook readings, instructional videos, etc.) with a weekly web conferencing session to provide a space for you to ask me questions, go over material in greater detail, and learn about my personal experiences working on forensic cases.

Exploration of individual consumer behavior, production decisions by the firm and supply and demand relationships in the marketplace. Examination of the international dimension of production and consumption choices. Meets New Mexico Lower-Division General Education Common Core Curriculum Area IV: Social/Behavioral Sciences (NMCCN 2123). (Prerequisite for most upper-division courses.)

Detailed Course Description

This is a fully online *8 week (Spring 2H)* course for introductory microeconomics - the branch of economics that examines individual, household and firm-level decision-making under scarcity. Because this is an introductory course, you are going to examine many different yet interesting topics. You will begin by analyzing why trade is good and introducing the demand and supply framework. You will then use this framework to understand economic efficiency and how government regulation can change market outcomes. Then, you will move on to explain how firms make decisions to maximize profit, and look at how this changes under different market structures including perfect competition and monopoly. You will end the course by applying what you have learned by looking at some special topics in microeconomics, time permitting - externalities and corrective measures, international trade and trade policy, and income distribution, poverty, and the welfare state.

All course content (including narrated lectures and discussion board assignments) will be administered through Learn (https://learn.unm.edu/) while labs and exams will be administered through MyEconLab (MEL) (http://www.myeconlab.com).

ECON 212.001 Personal Investing

Catalog Description

Investment options available to the individual will be analyzed in terms of economic theories of capital markets. Risk, value, returns and portfolio analysis.

Detailed Course Description

If you had invested $10,000 in the stock market (S&P500 Index) in January 2008 and panicked when the market bottomed out early 2009 during the Great Recession, you would have had an investment worth $4,800. But if you hadn't panicked and stayed in the market, you would have recovered to have $19,700 today. Even if you had started investing one year ago, your $10,000 would be worth $12,300 today. And if you had bought at the bottom of the market in March 2009 your $10,000 would be worth $41,200 today! The stock market is not only an interesting thing to study, it's exciting!

This course is about investing in your future. When to borrow, when to save, when to invest and what to invest in. It's an economics course that applies simple economic theories to the help you understand investing in your personal life.

ALL the class material – everything you would normally get in a face-to-face lecture is on the Course Website--there are no lectures on Learn. Learn is used to facilitate submitting work (homework, exam), to administer the quizzes, and to provide the forum for Discussions. Everything else is on the Course Website. If you find a conflict between the website and Learn, the website rules. And please notify the instructor via email of what you found so that it get fixed for others.

Make sure you register on Marketwatch and sign up for the stockmarket game. Playing the stock market game is fun and counts for 20% of your grade. You might find it frustrating at times, but something that every student ends up saying was a great part of the course.

Textbooks and Materials

Please check with the UNM bookstore for information on the course materials. Textbooks may be purchased online and shipped to your location. Refer to http://bookstore.unm.edu/ for textbook information.

Testing

There is a final exam, made up of 20 quiz questions (taken from the course quizzes) and two essays provided to you in advance. You have two hours to complete the exam, which is about 6 times more time than you need.

Catalog Description

Topics courses taught by faculty from the University of New Mexico and the surrounding community which vary according to the instructor's expertise.

Detailed Course Description

The purpose of this course is to develop an understanding of the impacts of Federal Indian law on the social and economic realities of Native America. Borrowing from the disciplines of sociology, anthropology, and economics, this course is intended to detect how the field of Federal Indian Law has transformed the native nation building project. The readings will examine the history of Federal Indian Law and to recast it as an object of study. In this course, you will examine how native (and non-native) lawyers operate as the change agents (agency), how Federal Indian Law creates an iron grip on tribal organizations and their relationships to external and internal entities (institutionalization), and how the transforming demands upon tribal nations as they enter the differing fields of federal, state, markets, and civic demands that transform the design and structure of legal systems (organizational fields).

This course will introduce you to a comprehensive reading list and speakers of Native scholars (and non-native) struggling to find resolution within their field and study. And, how Native American (and non-native) are working in tribal communities to protect and defend Native American communities while building their Native Nations through the tools of Federal Indian Law. Finally, the course will provide you the skills of using an institutional analysis framework to organize the immense project of native nation building.

This course will consist of weekly memos on the readings and speakers, a student-led discussion on one article, a final presentation based on an interview with a tribal attorney working with a tribal nation(s), and a case study with a tribal government. Students must come to class prepared and ready to participate in discussions.

Textbooks and Materials

No textbooks needed. Readings will be made available through UNM Learn.

Testing

Quizzes (Collectively, 30% of total grade): Throughout the semester students will be take 6 quizzes (20 points each each). Each quiz will be composed of multiple-choice questions related to the course material covered in the previous week. Quiz dates will be listed in the course syllabus as well as the weekly modules.

Participation (Collectively, 30% of total grade): To do well in this class you must participate in online discussions. Quality class participation is contingent on reading & watching assigned material prior to posting discussion posts and responses. In this sense, in order to receive a 100% on participation, students must participate in discussions and responses, and through discussion points, students must demonstrate a strong grasp of the readings & videos assigned for the week. Each initial post is worth 10 possible points, and should be at least 200 words in length. Students are also required to reply/respond to at least 2 other student posts each week; each reply should be at least 50 words in length, and offer a careful consideration of the issues in the student post. Each reply is worth a maximum of 5 points.

Discussion posts: Initial discussion points are to be posted Wednesdays by 11:59pm throughout the semester (with the exception of the first week, see schedule below). These posts are aimed to demonstrate that students have read the material and watched the videos & Powerpoint lectures for the week. Discussion points, therefore, should address information in the readings and the relationship of these concepts. Each week I will post a series of discussion questions. I will generally post 2 questions. Please respond to at least one of these questions in your discussion post each week. After you respond to my questions you are encouraged to incorporate other points.

Discussion responses: Discussion responses must be posted Saturdays by 8am, and they are aimed to create a discussion among class members within the discussion board on LEARN. Students should be respectful of other students’ discussion posts but they should also not feel restricted in constructively disagreeing (or agreeing) with another student or the professor. Non-substantial and/or disrespectful posts will be removed immediately and that student will not receive credit for that particular post. I encourage students to contact me about any content within their group that they feel is disrespectful or inappropriate.

Reflective Essays (Collectively, 30% of total grade): Twice during the semester (once after the eastern traditions are covered, and once after the western traditions) students will write an essay of 600-700 words on a topic indicated by the instructor. These essays will be worth a possible 60 points each. Your essays should: (1) include a brief introduction, (2) give a concise and detailed answer to the themes and questions assigned, using evidence from the readings & videos & Powerpoint lectures assigned for those modules, (3) draw comparisons between the readings, and (4) provide a brief personal reflection on the readings. Attention should be lent to each of these categories. An assignment dropbox will be set up for this assignment on LEARN.

Group Projects (10% of total grade): Early in the term, I will further subdivide the class into groups of 3 or 4 students, who will submit a group project for the final week of class. I will post a list of possible topics for the project, which will be available for the first group that requests that topic (no duplicates). You will work via email with your group members to submit a short (no longer than 10 minutes) video or PPT lecture. You will post these projects, and other students will be able to post responses to the projects the final week of class. Groups will submit progress reports to me to indicate how the projects are progressing; no last minute efforts! These projects will be worth a possible 40 points.

Summary of assessments: So: 6 quizzes worth a possible 20 points each (120 points total); participation in 8 discussions, with initial posts worth 10 points, and replies/responses worth a possible 5 point each (160 points total); and 2 reflective essays, worth a possible 60 points each (120 points total). Finally, there is the group project, which is worth a possible 40 points. This adds up to 440 possible points for the class.

SOC 101.006 Introduction to Sociology

Catalog Description

Basic concepts, topics and theories of contemporary sociology. Meets New Mexico Lower Division General Education Common Core Curriculum Area IV: Social/Behavioral Sciences (NMCCN 1113). Prerequisite for more advanced courses in sociology.

Detailed Course Description

Introduction to Sociology is a broad survey course designed to expose the new university student to the uses of sociological thinking, scholarship, and practical application. Students who are further progressed in their studies may also find they benefit from an exposure to sociological thinking. More mature students often find they can relate better with some years of experience behind them. This is also a valuable course for students in other fields of the social sciences.

We will examine what sociology is, the tools and terms sociologists use in their work, and the relevance of sociology in everyday life. Major concepts and theories will be covered and illustrated with current social examples.

There are also participation assignments where students view videos, record their observations of the content, relate the content to our course concepts, then share exchanges with other students in the course. The videos represent updated examples of the theories in action.
Online instructors can see when students access the course, so know if people are in it or not, and students who don't show up will likely be dropped.
Be sure you contact me if you have emergencies or ongoing issues.

Textbooks and Materials

Please check with the UNM bookstore for information on the course materials. Textbooks may be purchased online and shipped to your location. Refer to http://bookstore.unm.edu/ for textbook information.

There will be a link on the course home page to a free sociology textbook from Rice University. This is your basic source for the topics presented in the course, but which are supplemented with lecture notes. I take most of the exam materials from lecture notes and the extra readings.

Readings come from our two required popular press books, Malcolm Gladwell's, "Outliers", and Shankar Vedantam's, "Hidden Brain".
Grades depend on exams and assignments.

The syllabus, schedule, and any other required materials are linked on the home page.

Orientation

Orientation is in the course. Students have the first few days to explore the site and ask questions.

Face to Face Meetings

This course does not have face-to-face meetings.

Web Conferencing

This course does not have web conferencing.

Testing

This course has 3 relatively long exams, none of which are optional. They will be 50 questions each from a pool of 60-85 rotating questions.

Exams will only cover materials for the preceding modules, meaning they are not cumulative. Exams account for 75% of the total grade, 25% each exam. The remaining 25% of the grade will depend on participation in video discussions with other students. The parameters for these will be provided in the syllabus.

They will be open for about 5 days, so pay attention to the course schedule to know when they open and when they close.

Catalog Description

Covers the characteristics of persons with learning disabilities. Emphasis on the historical development of the field, definitions, etiologies, characteristics, diagnosis and research findings about assessment and instructional approaches.

Detailed Course Description

This is a fun introductory course on Learning Disabilities (LD). You'll learn to recognize unique characteristics of students with LD and some support strategies to work with this population. That said, former students had commented that this is not a "walk in the park" course. As is true for many online courses, a significant amount of time, commitment, and self-monitoring is demanded of you. As former students also said, you get what you put into the course.

Textbooks and Materials

Please check with the UNM bookstore for information on the course materials. Textbooks may be purchased online and shipped to your location. Refer to http://bookstore.unm.edu/ for textbook information.

Additional required readings will be available on UNM Learn for free.

Orientation

An online orientation will be required for this course and will take place in the course during the first week of class. The orientation gives you a chance to navigate the course and locate course materials, so that you can focus on learning the materials instead of finding them.

Face to Face Meetings

This course does not have face-to-face meetings.

Web Conferencing

Web Conferencing is optional for this course as this is how I will conduct "office hours" in case you need more "hands on" support. To web conference, a student will need:

This course does not have face-to-face meetings.

Web Conferencing

Web Conferencing is OPTIONAL for this course as this is how I will conduct "office hours" in case you need more "hands on" support.

To web conference, a student will need:
• A USB headset with microphone, or a set of speakers and a microphone.
• High speed internet. A wireless connection may not be reliable. Test
wireless connections for audio quality prior to web conferencing.

Testing

All exams will be completed online and students will be giving a window of
time (one week) to complete the exam. All exams are open book.
